The Australian Research Council Centre of Excellence in Policing and Security (CEPS) aimed to boost policing and security research capacity in Australia amid the growing complexity and internationalisation of transnational crime in the post 9/11 environment.
CEPS was a complex research network of collaborating researchers, universities and partner organisations. It was an ARC Centre of Excellence administered by Griffith University and operated across four university nodes, including ANU. Chief investigators forming the ANU node of CEPS were:
- Professor Roderic Broadhurst, the Regulatory Institutions Network (RegNet), ANU
- Professor Gabriele Bammer, the National Centre for Epidemiology and Population Health (NCEPH), ANU
- Professor William Tow, Department of International Relations, ANU
This project was completed in 2013 and CEPS is now hosted as a university centre in at Griffith University. A number of RegNet scholars remain affiliated with CEPS in its new iteration.
More information on the activities of CEPS is available on the Griffith University website.
